mangoes & friends is an English book club which started at EOTO in 2020. It aims at empowering People of African descent (PAD) through reading the works of writers from the African continent and Africans in the diaspora. We will introduce the works of African and Afrodiasporic writers and create a space to openly and honestly discuss stories and books we can relate to. Take the opportunity to meet with African, Black and Afrodiasporic bookworms and fans of the occasional literary enjoyment, discuss PAD authors.
The book club is led by Fitsame Teferra, a literary enthusiast running the independent children's books publishing house specializing in African languages and stories Habte Books.
REGISTRATION: To register, please send an email to email@example.com. Upon registration you will receive the link to the online platform. We are looking forward to seeing you on Sundays!
The book club is part of EOTO‘s Black Diaspora Library Berlin project, funded by Berliner Senatsverwaltung für Integration, Arbeit und Soziales, die Beauftragte des Berliner Senats für Partizipation und Migration
